2. A Talmudic Feast: Thursday, August 2, 8 PM

We will celebrate the start of the new cycle of Daf Yomi, in which one page of Talmud is studied each day, with talmudic tales and legends. We will study the first page of Tractate Berachot together and try to answer the question of how writers can make these tales and legends relevant to our own day and age.

Dr. Shmuel Faust, author of Aggadeta: Stories of the Talmudic Drama, scholar of rabbinic literature and editor of the literary supplement of Makor Rishon
